I think you would need the center part of the arm that is sandwiched between the alloy, or a reasonable facsimile thereof. Unless you absolutely must have an extra flash of red in that part of the car, I really don't think it's necessary. Let me give you a couple of plastic ones.
You'll want to get an extremely stiff servo saver either way, I think due to the much shorter distance the servo needs to travel to go full lock to full lock, the standard ones can't take enough force. The ones I have are too soft for this east/west config anyway. It was much too sloppy with them, so I just tried it out in "GT2" (21.5 blinky TC) today, without a servo saver. My old h6040 servo and the plastic bell crank assembly held up great, despite a few good knocks. Steering was very
responsive. My turtle car is now a lot more fun to drive.
..but I changed the chassis and just got the setup far more dialed this week so the steering change may have little to do with it. I changed too many things to say for certain.
